Light, bright and relaxed with a sophisticated beachy vibe, Coastal Hamptons is timeless, simple and surprisingly easy to live with.

Mention Hamptons style and you’ll probably think of chic and sophisticated beach houses, full of natural textures, light-filled spaces and an abundance of ocean-inspired blues and whites.

Australians are also fans of the Hamptons aesthetic, which originated in the exclusive coastline of Long Island, north of New York, with its distinctive houses made from brick, shingles and stone. But we’ve taken a more laid-back approach to the distinctive decorating style and given it a subtle Australian twist.

Light, bright and relaxed with a sophisticated beachy vibe, Coastal Hamptons is timeless, simple and surprisingly easy to live with.

Here’s how to create your very own slice of heavenly Hamptons style. 


The materials

Natural materials such as timber, brick and stone are a key part of the Coastal Hamptons look. In the Hamptons, wooden shingles are often used to create a weatherboard look, but brick offers a better alternative in Australia’s often harsh climate, while still achieving the classic look of a Hamptons’ home. 
Light-toned bricks – such as the four variants in PGH Bricks' new Coastal Hamptons range - add texture and a sense of solidity as well as creating a beautiful and elegant home which will stand the test of time.

The bricks complement the distinctive wooden features of a Hamptons’ house: window trims, welcoming verandas, columns and fretwork (not to mention a picket fence, although stone is commonly used to complete the look as well). 

Inside, the natural materials continue. Pale or whitewashed timber floors are almost de rigueur and are softened with sisal, jute or wool rugs in natural tones. 
Stone is often used to create dramatic internal design elements such as fireplaces and feature walls. A similar look can be achieved with Cultured Stone, which is a manufactured stone cladding product that has all the qualities of traditional stone but with significant added benefits, including affordability and lightness. 

In the kitchen and bathrooms, white wooden Shaker-style cabinetry is usually teamed with pale Carrara marble benchtops and subway tiles.

The colours

The Hamptons’ colour palette is inspired by the coast: think neutral tones in whites, creams, linen tones, greys and muted dusty blues often mixed with classic hints of navy and black.

Externally, the four elegant and relaxed shades of the Coastal Hamptons range – Beach, Gull Grey, Crevole and Washed White - effortlessly complement architectural details such as window trims, French doors and balustrades painted in crisp white. 

This theme extends inside, where white walls (try Wattyl’s Wattyl White or Luscious White which has a warm undertone to soften the look) are teamed with architraves, panelling – which add texture - and window frames painted in a cooler white or complementary pale accent colour.  

An exposed painted brick wall can also add some textured depth and character into a classic Coastal Hamptons home interior.   

Incorporating accent colours inspired by the ocean, sky and nature on patterned cushions and curtains add a touch of personality to an otherwise neutral scheme.

The lighting

The Coastal Hamptons look is all about light-filled rooms with a strong connection between indoor and outdoor. To that end, multi-paned windows, French doors and skylights are often used to let the natural light flood in.

Plantation shutters or floaty pale floor-to-ceiling curtains help contribute to the light and airy look. 

After dark, statement pendant lights – often hung over a kitchen island bench and dining table – and big, beautiful table lamps keep things bright and breezy. 

Exterior lighting is another crucial element of a Hamptons’ style exterior. Adding both a light source and a decorative feature, plus a way of highlighting your beautiful bricks, lighting should be considered around doorways, verandas and outdoor rooms. 

The accessories

When it comes to furniture, oversized, comfy sofas with pale linen or cotton drill slipcovers create a relaxed, practical, look while rattan, which is sometimes painted white or pastel grey or blue, add a beachy vibe. Elsewhere, consider timber tables and chairs, bookshelves and side tables, in a variety of finishes, and black accents.  

A leather butterfly chair, ottoman or pouffe will also be a casual but stylish addition to a Coastal Hamptons aesthetic.
